the healthcare bill. it's really about the lack of civility in washington and no conversation. a lot is done behind closed doors. it's inappropriate. we can do better. >> the latest poll shows brown has come from behind and surged ahead of state attorney general martha coakley who this morning campaigned at martin luther king jr. day breakfast. >> i asked for your vote tomorrow. on tuesday the 19, i would be honored to go to washington and work for you and with you. >> brown attended but chose not to speak at the mlk breakfast and accused coakley of desperation. >> i certainly didn't realize this was a rally for martha and i thought it was inproe inappropriate that she started to ask for people's vote when we're here to remember martin luther king jr. >> reporter: coakley says she took it for granted in the state, led an overly negative race and let brown come from behind in the shortened special election sprint. >> people in massachusetts know my record. they'll vote tomorrow. i think we will have a victory. >> how is it going, boston? >> reporter: president obama slammed brown and the gop
across the washington area. we'll take a few more hours to get the sunshine out but once wedo it should be a mild afternoon. 42 at reagan national, that's not bad for this time of day. 4in ocean city and 42 in hagerstown. our afternoon high temperatures, we have clearing skies, top out in the low 50s. 51 here in washington. winds out of the north and west at 15. so it will feel cooler than that but all in all a nice looking day for our martin luther king. let's get to lauren demarco and she's in with a look at our on- time traffic and i'm assing things are relatively quiet. >>> things are quiet. we're seeing light volume due to the holiday. we have holiday scheduling for metro, marc and vre, no service. and expect delays at grosvenor. no problems on the beltway. passing connecticut avenue. 270 looks good. appreciating the beltway into the inner loop, we have some police activity here to the left of the ramp, not causing much of a delay with the lighter volume. 66 looks great. no problems on 95 as you make the trip up from fredericksberg. here we are at the mixing bowl in springfield. ev
. >> a lot of democrats in washington wished she were the candidate and not martha coakley. the wild card today, the weather. the snow and freezing temperatures are in the forecast for most of massachusetts today. let's bring in nbc meteorologist bill karins to tell us exactly what the forecast is going to look like when folks come home from work today as well and decide if they have time to vote. >> this is going to be interesting, how it affects the actual election voting and turn out today. we have light snow covering most of the state. the worst of it today will be interstate 90 northwards. this is a look at interstate 90 and route 3 right now. we're already looking at heavy traffic. roads are, for the most part, wet, but you can see, it's not a pretty day out there in much of the bay state. the forecast does call for temperatures to go above freezing. the roads should be okay. we're calling for 1 to 2 inches of snow north of the turnpike. kind of the bottom line is people, it's going to take longer to get to work today. it's also going to take longer to get home. that's a little extr
raised $1 million every day. and they sent bodies. where are you from? >> i'm from washington. >> reporter: where are you from? >> i'm from wisconsin. >> reporter: why were they here? >> scott brown has the opportunity to restore a balance of power in the united states senate. and that's important to washington to wisconsin, it's important to massachusetts. it's important to the entire united states of america. >> thank you very much. inappreciate the votes. >> reporter: last week, i talked to brown about the state of the race. why all the excitement? >> well, because it represents an opportunity for change to go to washington. at least bring back the debate. as the 41st senator, i can can at least allow them to maybe look at things a little differently. >> reporter: he brought up that magic number 41. now he will become the 41st republican senator, enough to block health care reform and wreak havoc on the president's agenda. less than five months after the death of ted kennedy, the lion of the senate, the darling of massachusetts's liberals, it is the man who will take his se
make washington different sooner. the independents don't like at you will the part sdplanship. tonight they sent a message. >> larry: jessica we heard what a bad or poor candidate martha coakley was. in her concession speech she seemed clear-headed and had a nice voice and good approach to the crowd. what went wrong? >> reporter: you know, she's been an elected official in the state for many years, so she knows how to be with people. she's not unlikeable, but many felt she didn't have the fire in her belly. when you talk to folks on the street lashgsy, they didn't feel like she was going to do it pous. that she would fight for them. she did make some really crucial missteps. she went and asked a reporter what do you expect me to do? stand outside the baseball stadium and shake hands in the cold? in american politics the answer is yes. she came off as aloof, detached and voters felt it it. john was pointing out something that her pam contain has said over and over. there's a sense that change in washington hasn't come fast enough. there's a tidal wave of anger coming toward her that the
have been going in washington. and that may get help to vote for brown. others have been very much in support of coakley saying that they believe that she would more match the ideas of, foegs, ted kennedy's legacy. and they've tried to get out the vote today. they have a much stronger organization to do those things of getting people to the polls because of all of the democrats' history here and their usual dominance in these elections. so part of it is energy versus organization in how things will play out today. and from what we've been hearing checking in with different polling places, the turnout has been bigger than you would ever expect for a special election. more like a midterm election, but not rising to the level of when a presidential race is on the ballot. so this has gotten huge attention here in boston. it's raleally is snapshot of th discontent. and for some they're imposing on to scott brown a chance to do something differently even if they're not entirely sure about all of his views. and martha coakley who remains popular here has been hit with a lot of criticism a
as a polling call for this election. it originated from a washington, d.c., area code. they repeatedly tried calling the phone number today, identified as the source of that b bamboozling call. there have been sporadic reports of ballot irregularities today. a handful of voters report being given ballots already filled in. yes, it has been a weird day here in massachusetts. and honestly, a weird culmination to a really important senate race. as is usually the case in special elections, voter turnout is the key tonight. the high voter turnout, especially in urban areas would benefit martha coakley. the turnout in boston appeared to be high earlier in the day. tonight then, a democratic operative told the washington post "boston turned out numbers not good for coakley." but as much of these things often are, before we get the hard numbers, there was conflicting information. the secretary of state's office released information saying the actual turnout numbers in boston as of 3:00 p.m. were roughly on par for the 2006 election. that's a big deal, because in 2006 that was a real election. not th

>>> good morning. from washington to wall street, with main street on the mind, the president promising to take on the devastation. >> despite our hardships, our union is strong. we do not give up. we do not quit. we do not allow fear or division to break our spirit. in this new decade, it's time the american people get a government that matches their decency, that embodies their strength. >> today, americans and the markets react. we'll have complete coverage, plus a flurry of corporate reports today, like proctor & gamble, 3m, ford and more. and i'm back in the studio, but becky is still reporting live from davos against this morning. beck. >> that is right, joe. everything from president obama's state of the union address through the corporate headlines. the biggest names in business and politics, we're watching it all from here and we're commenting throughout the day.
